We are looking for an enthusiastic, friendly beer lover to take the reigns at our Balham shop. Voted Time Out’s Best Shop in Balham 3 years running, our flagship store has been a pioneer in beer retailing since opening in 2014, stocking an incredible range of beers in bottle, can & draught as well as hosting events with a huge amount of top name breweries, including Cloudwater, BBNO, Beavertown & Weird Beard amongst others. The manager’s role is a crucial one, and involves the day to day running of the shop with a high level of autonomy & responsibility for the right person. You’ll be in charge of beer ordering for the store, liaising with breweries, store presentation & merchandising, organising events, and helping to plan the strategy for keeping the good ship Balham on it’s upward trajectory.
At We Brought Beer, our customer is our number one priority and so we are looking for someone who truly understands how to deliver a 5 star experience to each and every customer that walks in the door, and who can motivate their fellow team members to do the same. The ideal candidate will have solid experience either in retail or pub management, ideally in a customer service focused company. A good knowledge of beer is obviously preferred but you don’t necessarily need to be a full on hardened beer geek when you join – just having the desire to become one is enough for now! A welcoming, friendly and highly organised personality is a MUST however, and we are looking for someone who can really contribute to strategy planning to grow the business further.
The package includes:
- Salary: £21,000 – £25,000 dependent on experience
- Revenue based monthly bonus
- 28 days holiday
- Generous weekly beer allowance (research purposes only of course)
- Staff discount in store
- Regular (fully paid for) team nights out
- Brewery visits
To apply, email a CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
